For young adult and adult: In this fantasy-comedy Hym and Hur are a young couple who never age and have been in love for more than a century. They also possess an array of magical abilities, two of which are either to play pranks on humankind or to perform good deeds. Enacting both at the same time is now what gets them into trouble, especially since it's the character of Death they must deal with to bring their plans to fruition.
The prank Hym and Hur have come up with must first be agreed upon by Death, who happens to be an unruly, difficult character. Once agreed upon, the prank is set in motion. But then Hym and Hur discover Death had tricked them into a contract with dire consequences for all of us.
During their attempt to break the contract, Hym and Hur try to save the relationship of an earthbound couple, knowing they are truly meant for each other. A good deed that will bring Hym and Hur even more trouble.
For young and old alike, this was a deliciously funny little tale. I loved the pranks Hym & Hur played and the funny interventions they made into people's lives, whether for the best or not. The story ran smoothly and the characters were believable. The end was very sweet and I would love to read more of this author's work. - Reviewed by book blogger Kim Fowler at: wistfulskimmiesbookreviews.blogspot.com
